Firestorm: Stripes

The Team Yankee Global Campaign

11th ACR meeting engagment at Frankfurt

United States
VS Warsaw Pact

Bravo Troop 1st of the 11th Armored Cavalry was given the mission of attacking into the flank of the Warsaw Pact forces that penetrated into the area around Frankfurt. The Pact commander had good intel on the intentions of the 11th and dispatched a East German Tank Battalion to blunt the attack.
The meeting engagement developed rapidly with both forces running head on into each other. Once contact was made both sides took advantage of the terrain available and the battle settled into a long range duel from concealed positions. The forces were pretty evenly matched with the East German T-72M against the M60A3 TTS. Both sides took horrific losses very early in the battle causing a platoon of M60’s to flee the battlefield. The rest of the Troop held firm and was able to destroy all the East German armor causing all the support elements to retreat giving control of the battlefield to B Troop. Follow on forces are conducting a passage of lines at this time to continue the mission. Bravo Troop will be out of the fight for some time due to severe losses.

    Congrats on the win!

    Not bad for an early report, and NATO will take the Win. Still, it’s much easier to digest when you break up the narrative and the photos.

    Welcome to the front and congratulations on your first win!

    Good morning all!,

    Thanks for all the feed back. To be honest the pictures are normal on my PC and I have no idea how or why they changed position like that. Also if I had known I could use video I would have done so. That is my preferred method for a BatReps. I posted a video on the Team Yankee Facebook page that I made during the game if you are interested in viewing it. It is probably better than the pics

    Also I had idea this section existed, if I did I would have spent some time viewing all the BatReps here before I posted mine. I look forward to reading over some of the other BatReps and hopefully learn something useful to destroy my enemies!

    I look forward to posting more, does anyone know how long the Campaign is going to last?

    Your report was definitely to the point. It was a good fight.


    1] Rotate your pictures before you post them.

    2] I know they said upload a gallery, but if you spread out the pictures with a caption and a textbox with a snippet of what is going on in the picture, it will go a long way for you.

    3] I learned these things the hard way.

    Keep up the fight for freedom and Murica!
